High Energy The Whole Time
2nd time i've been to this venue and it's better and better.
the band and the crowd were one, creek's energy was sustained the entire time, magic all throughout.
anytime there's an acoustic creek set, all the goodies get pulled out and That's What They Say is a staple, as is Ashes of Love. the jam out of sunshine was very nice and set the groove. mark always does can't let go nicely. hard love was acoustic and the whole intro was acapella mark. free born man brought the house down in double time.
i saw her standing there was amazing and full energy. if there was ever a johnny b. goode of songs, it's creek covering this one.
when Tommy says double dare is an opener, it's good. always loved this song as it's slow on the metronome and each minute of this song was a never ending crescendo until the climax. i hope when i relisten to it, it will feel the same because they could do no wrong on it.
it's been too long since i heard katie mae, big river, self explanatory and the bug! when they broke this out in 99/00, i didn't know who sang it. and if you compare creek's rendition of The Bug to Dire Straits at Basel '92, creek overwhelmingly does it more justice.
can't go wrong with the feat for an encore. my legs hurt from dancing for 2 days after. you will love this show!
